Future Cities Future

Solo Exhibition at Apotheke Gallery

Continuing its curatorial inquiry into contemporary aesthetic and theoretical engagements with notions of 'the city', APOTHEKE presents Eleanna Martinou's new work, part of her ongoing research series on issues of urbanism and the future titled Imaginary Metropolises. Concurrently a programme of collaborative actions, screenings and talks by Architecture 112, Radio Propaganda and George-Icaros Babassakis will further explore the past, present and destiny of cities across their depictions, and their expectations, in Martinou's work and elsewhere.

Opening Party: 28 May, 20:00 with George-Icaros Babassakis as a DJ through a cities-infused playlist
